NIVA Game and WS.Reputation.1

Yesterday my daughter asked me to download a game for her, called "NIVA" (i.e. http://www.nivagame.com).  After review, I did so. However, I could not get it to run. Upon investigating, it appears the problem is that Norton removed two .DLL files needed by the application (i.e. "Assembly-CSharp.dll" and "Assembly-CSharp-firstpass.dll").  The Norton details say that it's due to "WS.Reputation.1". After reading up on this, my impression is that essentially the files are assumed guilty into proven innocent - so to speak.  Given that, would it be reasonably safe for me to exclude the folder for the same, from scanning?

THANKS - ma

Re: NIVA Game and WS.Reputation.1

It is a false positive. You can restore and exclude the program by opening up Norton and going into your history. Furthermore you need to submit a false positive claim to Symantec.

That's what it looked like to me.  But I wanted another opinion.  Thanks for providing that. - mz.

@MikeZinSAT,

Personally, it's safe to exclude (from download to installation folder and to Program Control in Firewall) said NIVA game , a HUGE game.

Yet, you can re-scan the setup file you get/download when you get the latest version of Norton product.

As for "WS.Reputation.1" detection, you may re-read this old forum thread.

WS.Reputation.1 is a detection for files that have a low reputation score based on analyzing data from Symantec’s community of users and therefore are likely to be security risks. Detections of this type are based on Symantec’s reputation-based security technology. Because this detection is based on a reputation score, it does not represent a specific class of threat like adware or spyware, but instead applies to all threat categories. 

Thx~ :)
